Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Product Review

nordstrom anniversary sale, nordstrom sale, nordstrom

Hey there, ladies!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens for everyone on FRIDAYYYY! There are so many great deals and I’ve styled a few of my favorites – and not-so-favorites – for you guys to check out before you make your purchases! I think I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again … don’t be discouraged if the item you click on is sold out! Nordstrom typically reserves stock of popular items for the public sale launch so make a list of the MUST-HAVE’S that you want to check on Friday morning and you should see that. I’m not saying EVERYTHING will be restocked – or then the Early Access wouldn’t be as special as it is – but there are a lot of things that will be  🙂

Two things before I leave you to check out what I bought and plan your purchases …

• Join me on IG Live tonight at 8:00pm EST where I’ll go over all of the beauty buys I purchased, what my thoughts are on each one, whether it’s worth it or not and what I’m returning! I can’t wait to hang out with you there!

• There’s a giveaway over on my Instagram HERE. Be sure to enter! I have decided to extend it and allow you to enter until 12:00pm EST today! I will update this post with the giveaway winner at 1:15pm EST!

TURTLENECK SWEATER | OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS | DARK DENIM JEANS 

These Hudson High-Waisted Super Skinny Jeans are one of three favorite pairs of jeans from the sale; the other pairs are HERE and HERE. These are extremely high-waisted and really help keep things looking slim and trim. They run big, so go one size down from your normal. They are a little long so you’d need to get them tapered if you’re short, like me. [I’m 5’3]

This cashmere turtleneck sweater is super cozy, fits true to size and comes in multiple color options. It’s still a bit pricey because it’s cashmere but, if you live somewhere really cold during the Fall and Winter, I would recommend making the investment! I have multiple cashmere pieces from this brand and they do it very well.

These beautiful suede over-the-knee boots are one of the best deals of the sale. They retail for over $800 and they are marked down to $500. I have this exact same pair but they’re flat, with no heel. See how I styled them in London HERE and in Germany HERE. They stretch to fit your calf and are really flattering on most, even short gals such as myself! Be sure to take care of the suede to ensure they last you a long time [here’s a suede protector that I’d recommend investing in] and be aware that this color does rub off a little bit on your jeans, but DOES wash out. Go half size DOWN from your normal size.

GRAY JEANS | PLAID TOP | GRAY HANDBAGBOOTIES

This plaid button-up top runs true to size. It’s supposed to be a little bit oversized. I’m wearing my normal size, XS, here but typically I go one more size up so I can easily wear these easily with leggings.

I’m a huge fan of gray jeans. I like these, most especially because they’re super soft, but I don’t love them. They stretch out a little bit over time in the leg and are naturally a bit baggy in the ankles, which is a pet peeve of mine with skinny jeans. If they’re skinny jeans, they need to be skinny throughout, ya know? I’ll likely return these but, if you’re wanting to try them out for yourself, go with your normal size. They are a bit long though for us short gals! You’ll need to cut them yourself!

These rag & bone booties are my absolute favorite shoe pick so far. They’re still a bit pricey, even with the discount, but I know rag & bone makes quality booties that will last you season after season! These run small so go one size up from your normal!

OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS | DARK DENIM JEANS | WHITE TANK | LONG SLEEVE TEE | MILITARY JACKET | SCARF

This white Caslon long-sleeve crew neck tee is an absolute must. It’s an amazing basic for any Fall outfit and under $20 during the sale! It comes in regular and petite sizing. Personally, I get a regular XS. I like my basic tees, like this, a little loose.

These Hudson High-Waisted Super Skinny Jeans are one of three favorite pairs of jeans from the sale; the other pairs are HERE and HERE. These are extremely high-waisted and really help keep things looking slim and trim. They run big, so go one size down from your normal. They are a little long so you’d need to get them tapered if you’re short, like me. [I’m 5’3]

This military jacket is extremely oversized and made of thin material. It’s meant to be oversized but, personally, I think it’s a little too oversized for me, and I don’t like all the strings hanging from it. I’m wearing an XS here so size down if you really like this particular jacket.

The blanket scarf  I’m wearing is the real deal! I love it and the colors!

These beautiful suede over-the-knee boots are one of the best deals of the sale. They retail for over $800 and they are marked down to $500. I have this exact same pair but they’re flat, with no heel. See how I styled them in London HERE and in Germany HERE. They stretch to fit your calf and are really flattering on most, even short gals such as myself!

BIB TANK | GRAY JEANS | WHITE TANK

I’m a huge fan of gray jeans. I like these, most especially because they’re super soft, but I don’t love them. They stretch out a little bit over time in the leg and are naturally a bit baggy in the ankles, which is a pet peeve of mine with skinny jeans. If they’re skinny jeans, they need to be skinny throughout, ya know? I’ll likely return these but, if you’re wanting to try them out for yourself, go with your normal size. They are a bit long though for us short gals! You’ll need to cut them yourself!

This bib top is so flattering. It runs true to size. It’s super cute but, obviously, might not be necessary if you have some other basics that you need to buy and would get more use out of.

LEGGINGSSPORTS BRA | TENNIS SHOES | PINK TANK

Zella and Nike are two of my favorite athleisure brands and these are my favorite pieces from those brands that are a part of the sale. All of these items run true to size. I actually typically wear an XXS in their leggings but got an XS and they fit perfectly!

FLEECE HOODIE | DARK DENIM JEANS

These Hudson High-Waisted Super Skinny Jeans are one of three favorite pairs of jeans from the sale; the other pairs are HERE and HERE. These are extremely high-waisted and really help keep things looking slim and trim. They run big, so go one size down from your normal. They are a little long so you’d need to get them tapered if you’re short, like me. [I’m 5’3]

I cannot get enough of this fleece hoodie. It is everythinggg! I literally live in pullovers like this in the Winter! I’m wearing an XS. It runs true to size.

WHITE TOP | DISTRESSED DENIMBOOTIES | CASHMERE WRAP 

These rag & bone booties are my absolute favorite shoe pick so far. They’re still a bit pricey, even with the discount, but I know rag & bone makes quality booties that will last you season after season! These run small so go one size up from your normal!

I can’t recommend these jeans enough. I got the same version, with a tiny bit more distressing, last year. I wear them ALL the time and if y’all ever catch me wearing them in Snapchat or IG stories, I always get questions about them. I’m so excited that these are back so y’all can take advantage. They’re relaxed boyfriend fit jeans, but aren’t too baggy! They run true to size and are under $70!

There are two cashmere wraps included in the sale and this is the one that I think is the best value. It’s the longer one and it’s really warm. You can wear it as a wrap or a scarf and comes in multiple colors! This is the cheaper one of the two as well so … #winning!

This is my favorite basic tee that is included in the sale. It was included last year, which is when I got it, and I seriously wear it all the time! I have a Regular XS on here. I like it a little baggier on me, personally. It comes in regular and petite sizing.

STRIPE PANTS | WHITE TOP | ADIDAS SWEATSHIRT

These stripe PJ pants are super soft. They run a bit big because they’re XS is designed to fit a size 2 instead of a 00/0. I’d go one size down because that’s not typically how the size scale goes. Refer to the product page for the accurate size guide. I’m wearing an XS but would have gone down to an XXS had that been an available option.

This adidas sweatshirt runs true to size.

DARK DENIM JEANS | LONG SLEEVE TEE | SCARF | CARDIGAN | BOOTIES

This white Caslon long-sleeve crew neck tee is an absolute must. It’s an amazing basic for any Fall outfit and under $20 during the sale! It comes in regular and petite sizing. Personally, I get a regular XS. I like my basic tees, like this, a little loose.

I’m wearing Paige Denim’s Hoxton High-Waisted Skinny Jean. Personally, I think they fit great, despite the length, but I will be returning them because I like a couple of the other jeans included in the sale a little better. They are high-waisted, which I know is a huge plus for some people, and I really love the dark wash. They run big so go one size down from your normal size, but be aware .. they’re long for anyone short, like myself. [I’m 5’3, for reference]

This Madewell scarf is one of two scarves I purchased during the sale. The material is warm and I love how it hangs. Sometimes scarves are too bulky and are a little overwhelming when you wrap them around your neck but, the material of this scarf is soft so it lays very delicately and beautifully.

The Leith cardigan is one of my favorite cardigans included in the sale. It is slightly oversized if you order your normal size, so go one size down if you want a more fitted look. I’m wearing an XS. Be aware that the material in and of itself won’t keep you super warm. You’ll need to wear a long-sleeve layer underneath it, as well as a scarf, when it’s super cold out! This is a FALL cardigan, not a WINTER cardigan.

These rag & bone booties are my absolute favorite shoe pick so far. They’re still a bit pricey, even with the discount, but I know rag & bone makes quality booties that will last you season after season! These run small so go one size up from your normal!

LONG SLEEVE TEE | OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTSDARK DENIM JEANS | CARDIGAN

This white Caslon long-sleeve crew neck tee is an absolute must. It’s an amazing basic for any Fall outfit and under $20 during the sale! It comes in regular and petite sizing. Personally, I get a regular XS. I like my basic tees, like this, a little loose.

They are a little long so you’d need to get them tapered if you’re short, like me. [I’m 5’3]

I really like this chunky ribbed cardigan, most especially the color! There aren’t a lot of cognac colored items [shoes, sweaters, handbags] like there used to be so I was immediately drawn to this one because I still love that color because it is so versatile. It pairs well with so many other neutrals like mahogany, gray and stone. I’m excited to share how I style this in other ways! I think it’d look great with a white tee and black jeans and black booties, in particular! I’m wearing an XXS so go one size down from your normal!

These beautiful suede over-the-knee boots are one of the best deals of the sale. They retail for over $800 and they are marked down to $500. I have this exact same pair but they’re flat, with no heel. See how I styled them in London HERE and in Germany HERE.

Go half size DOWN from your normal size.

WHITE TOP | JEANS | CARDIGAN | BOOTIESWHITE TANK

These gray booties are one of my favorites from the sale. I love the slit on the side and the eyelet detail along the edges. These run true to size.

I love AG Jeans so much and this pair is a really flattering one. They’re almost $100 and run large, so be sure to go one size down. They’re also a bit long but because there is raw hem at the bottom that you can just cut them to the length you want.

This is my favorite basic tee that is included in the sale. It was included last year, which is when I got it, and I seriously wear it all the time! I have a Regular XS on here. I like it a little baggier on me, personally. It comes in regular and petite sizing.

This gray cardigan is a great Fall staple. It comes in multiple colors and is just under $32. I wouldn’t say it’s made of the best material but if that doesn’t matter to you, then it’ll work great for the look you’re going for! It runs large so order one size down.

This gray leather satchel is a great buy for the upcoming season. It has so much room for your belongings and can be worn as a satchel or a cross body. Frye always makes high quality merchandise so I highly recommend this item.

BLUE COLD SHOULDER TOP | WHITE DENIM | MILLER SANDALS | TOTE

This is such a fun summer top! It’s thin and lightweight. It’s a little see-through so be sure to wear a beige strapless instead of white. It’s long so I opted for a front tuck. Easy breezy for a nice summer night!

WHITE TOP | JACKET | OPEN TOE BOOTIES | DENIM | WHITE TANK

This is my favorite basic tee that is included in the sale. It was included last year, which is when I got it, and I seriously wear it all the time! I have a Regular XS on here. I like it a little baggier on me, personally. It comes in regular and petite sizing.

These 7 For All Mankind jeans are probably the best overall fitting pairs of jeans I tried on from the sale. However, the overall wash is the reason why I will likely return them. I don’t like the white whisker look.

These open-toe booties fit well and are cute but not particularly my style. They run true to size but I will be returning them.

My jacket is a great lightweight layer on those days when you’re not sure what the weather is going to do … which is almost everyday here in Florida in the summertime. I love the light gray/blue color and look forward to styling it in an upcoming blog post for y’all! It comes in regular and petite sizing. I’m wearing a Petite XS.

PONCHOLONG SLEEVE TEE | OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTSDARK DENIM JEANS

This white Caslon long-sleeve crew neck tee is an absolute must. It’s an amazing basic for any Fall outfit and under $20 during the sale! It comes in regular and petite sizing. Personally, I get a regular XS. I like my basic tees, like this, a little loose.

They are a little long so you’d need to get them tapered if you’re short, like me. [I’m 5’3]

The cashmere poncho is a great piece for anyone who loves an easy warm throw on, over an easy basic outfit, but tends to get hot indoors during the fall and winter. You can easily take this off to allow yourself to cool down! I personally am going to use this when I travel in the Fall and Winter. Those travel days, especially long ones, you’re rushing from one gate to another, so you may want to stash it in your tote but … when you’re on the plane, and you’ve been up for 14 hours, you can cozy up in it as a blanket or ball it up as a mini pillow. Then, when you head outdoors, it can be your poncho again! How amazing is it that one thing can actually have more than one use?! If you want it to be a part of your outfit, and not take it off, I’d style a blanket scarf with it with over the knee boots!

These beautiful suede over-the-knee boots are one of the best deals of the sale. They retail for over $800 and they are marked down to $500. I have this exact same pair but they’re flat, with no heel. See how I styled them in London HERE and in Germany HERE.

TURTLENECK SWEATER | OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS | DARK DENIM JEANS | LAVENDER COAT

This cashmere turtleneck sweater is super cozy, fits true to size and comes in multiple color options. It’s still a bit pricey because it’s cashmere but, if you live somewhere really cold during the Fall and Winter, I would recommend making the investment! I have multiple cashmere pieces from this brand and they do it very well.

This lavender coat has been on my lust list for about a couple of years now and I never  seem to get to it before it’s sold out in my size. I was really excited to see it was a part of the sale this year so I could finally get my hands on one … at a discount! The results are in … and I absolutely LOVE this coat! It is classic, feminine and beautiful. I love how it fits. It has a two button closure at the waist and a tie, and you can bundle it up with a magnet closure! I’m wearing a 0. It’s a little loose in the waist but I’d say it runs true to size.

FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS | BOOTIES | CARDIGAN | LONG SLEEVE TEESATCHEL 

This black Caslon long-sleeve crew neck tee is an absolute must. It’s an amazing basic for any Fall outfit and under $20 during the sale! It comes in regular and petite sizing. Personally, I get a regular XS. I like my basic tees, like this, a little loose.

These gray booties are one of my favorites from the sale. I love the slit on the side and the eyelet detail along the edges. These run true to size.

These faux leather leggings are comfortable but I am going to pass on these. I know that faux leather leggings can be smooth when your legs rub up against each other but these make noise and kind of ‘catch’ on each other. Also, there are zippers on the back of the legging from the ankle to the calf, which I didn’t notice when I was looking at them online. These fit well and are great for short gals, like myself, but I think there are better ones out there!

This cashmere drape cardigan is the IT cardigan to buy in my opinion. It’s such a beautiful silhouette and is super warm and cozy for the Fall and Winter months. It’s a great deal at $150 considering it’s cashmere. I’m wearing a Petite XXS. I would purchase Regular or Petite based on your height then order one size down from your normal size from there.

This gray leather satchel is a great buy for the upcoming season. It has so much room for your belongings and can be worn as a satchel or a cross body. Frye always makes high quality merchandise so I highly recommend this item.

CARDIGAN | V-NECK TEE GRAY JEANS | BOOTIES

These rag & bone booties are my absolute favorite shoe pick so far. They’re still a bit pricey, even with the discount, but I know rag & bone makes quality booties that will last you season after season! These run small so go one size up from your normal!

This V-neck tee is loose-fitting and an easy throw on. I think I like the Caslon tee better, personally. I like that it’s bright white, whereas this top is tinged yellow/beige. BUT … you can only really tell when it’s against something bright white so it’s not too bad. I’m wearing an XS here so I’d say it runs big. Size down if you want something more fitted.

I’m a huge fan of gray jeans. I like these, most especially because they’re super soft, but I don’t love them. They stretch out a little bit over time in the leg and are naturally a bit baggy in the ankles, which is a pet peeve of mine with skinny jeans. If they’re skinny jeans, they need to be skinny throughout, ya know? I’ll likely return these but, if you’re wanting to try them out for yourself, go with your normal size. They are a bit long though for us short gals! You’ll need to cut them yourself!

I think it’d look great with a white tee and black jeans and black booties, in particular! I’m wearing an XXS so go one size down from your normal!

WHITE TOP  | BLACK LOUNGE PANTS

This is my favorite basic tee that is included in the sale. It was included last year, which is when I got it, and I seriously wear it all the time! I have a Regular XS on here. I like it a little baggier on me, personally. It comes in regular and petite sizing.

 These lounge pants are liiiiife, ladies! You need them. They’re so comfortable! I may have worn them all day yesterday when I wasn’t shooting all of these photos, hah! They run a bit big but just get your normal size. The tie makes them fit just fine.

JEANS | BOOTIES | GRAY TOP | CARDIGAN | PURSE

The Leith cardigan is one of my favorite cardigans included in the sale. It is slightly oversized if you order your normal size, so go one size down if you want a more fitted look. I’m wearing an XS. Be aware that the material in and of itself won’t keep you super warm. You’ll need to wear a long-sleeve layer underneath it, as well as a scarf, when it’s super cold out! This is a FALL cardigan, not a WINTER cardigan.

These rag & bone skinny jeans are one of the other favorite pairs of jeans that I personally like in the sale. They fit so well in the waist, hips and down the leg. They’re a tiny bit long but I love the color of the underside of the jean, so when they’re cuffed … they look really cute. They’re $65 off and, while they’re currently sold out, I think this is an item that will be restocked during the public launch! They run big, so go down one size from your normal.

One of the hidden gems in this sale is this gray tank top with a slight turtleneck. It’s double-lined so it’s a little thick but it’s made of soft material, which I really like. It’s form-fitting and would look great under cardigans and blazers. It comes in regular and petite sizing. I’m wearing a regular XS and it’s only $20!

This Tory Burch crossbody is a soft pebbled leather and I love the gray color. I think it’s a refreshing neutral compared to the typical cognac or beige color. It has quite a bit of room inside for all of your everyday items and maybe a few more! I definitely think this is a really great deal for this bag. You’ll get a lot of use out of it.

These rag & bone booties are my absolute favorite shoe pick so far. They’re still a bit pricey, even with the discount, but I know rag & bone makes quality booties that will last you season after season! These run small so go one size up from your normal!

PINK SWEATER TANKGRAY JEANS

This pink tank top sweater is great but I’m not sure it’s super practical. It is warm and really, really cute, though. If you’re interested in it … I would size up. I typically go for an XXS Petite when brands offer it because it typically means their garments run big but, I’m wearing a Petite Small here and it fits like a regular XS would in most garments. I’m sorry that’s so confusing. I hope it makes sense!

I’m a huge fan of gray jeans. I like these, most especially because they’re super soft, but I don’t love them. They stretch out a little bit over time in the leg and are naturally a bit baggy in the ankles, which is a pet peeve of mine with skinny jeans.

These are extremely high-waisted and really help keep things looking slim and trim. They run big, so go one size down from your normal. They are a little long so you’d need to get them tapered if you’re short, like me. [I’m 5’3]

These beautiful suede over-the-knee boots are one of the best deals of the sale. They retail for over $800 and they are marked down to $500. I have this exact same pair but they’re flat, with no heel. See how I styled them in London HERE and in Germany HERE. They stretch to fit your calf and are really flattering on most, even short gals such as myself! Be sure to take care of the suede to ensure they last you a long time [here’s a suede protector that I’d recommend investing in] and be aware that this color does rub off a little bit on your jeans, but DOES wash out. Go half size DOWN from your normal size.

I can’t recommend this cardigan enough. It’s super cozy and does have a percentage of wool within the fabric so it should keep you pretty warm. It runs large so size down. I’m wearing an XXS.

I hope this was helpful! I have a few more things coming in today. My orders have all been delayed, so it’s obviously been a slow process getting this post to y’all! I’ll be updating it throughout the day with more products and my thoughts on them in case you were needing more insight on more things! Thanks for stopping by today! Appreciate ya! xo.

    Haley – I just ordered a pair of gray skinny jeans from the sale. I’m not sure if they’ll fit yet, but I like the idea of gray jeans. Do you think you could do a post at some point about how to style gray jeans, both with shirts and shoes? It would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  4. Maggie says:

    Would you happen to know what time the sale opens to the public on Friday? Is is like 12am, 8am, etc?

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      I think around 2 or 3AM because they typically close the site down to restock items and add new ones! xo.

  5. Lydia says:

    Thank you, Haley for putting together this post. I can tell it took a lot of time and effort. xox

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Thank you! xo.

  6. Sara says:

    Best Nordstrom Sale review I’ve seen so far! This post definitely helped me narrow down on which picks to purchase! Thank you for being so awesome!

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Thank you, Sara! I appreciate it! xo.

  7. Rebecca says:

    Yay!!! I love the Nsale try ons you do. I have already purchased so much based on your recommendations. Thank you for what you Do!

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Glad to hear they’ve been helpful! xo.

  8. Lizbeth says:

    I’m a cardigan kinda girl but since I am 5 ft tall but kinda busty, it’s so hard to pick a size online. My nearest Nordstrom is over an hour away so I have to make quite a trip to get to it once the sale starts at stores. Thanks for all the tips girl 😘

  9. Ciara says:

    Love this post!! I keep checking back for the winner of the contest! 🙂

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      I have terrible service at this appointment that I’m at. I feel so bad I haven’t gotten one to you yet! I have to copy and paste all comments into excel and the site won’t load all of the comments. I appreciate your patience. I’ll get it to y’all ASAP. xo.

  10. Rebecca C says:

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll have to try those out!

  11. Thank Pink Coat is so GORGEOUS on you! Very excited for tomorrowww! 🙂

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      I misspoke about the public sale launch date! I apologize! It opens to everyone on FRIDAY 🙂 xo.

  12. Kim says:

    Love the way you styled all these outfits! I get so much inspiration from you. It’s hard though because I live in south FL so I can’t wear a lot of boots, sweaters, etc… but I want too! I’m definitely getting the SW boots. I’ll just wear them with skirts & dresses. ❤️👍🏻😊

  13. Amanda Faber says:

    Love all of these picks!! I think I’m going to order the cashmere wrap, I just can’t decide on what color to get. Love the pink or should I go more neutral? Hmmmm. I also got the Rag & Bome booties and I’m torn! But I love they way you have styled them!!

  14. Jenna says:

    Thanks for putting this together! Very helpful! 🙂

  15. Gina says:

    I’m dying over the Ted Baker coat. I love the navy for my skin tone and it’s currently sitting on my wishlist trying to decide whether I should splurge! I’m curious what it looks like worn open over an outfit…would love to see it styled that way on your IG (or stories) if you get a chance. Great post!!

  16. Rebecca C says:

    I agree I’m not sure if I’m a fan of the grey Paige jeans after trying them on. Are there any grey jeans (included or not included in the sale) that you like?

    Love the post and love all the information you provide! Thanks!

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Hey Rebecca! Here are a pair that I just put in my cart that I’d like to try: http://rstyle.me/n/cqka4zt826

      I love how Hudson jeans fit overall, so maybe try those! I also love this light gray color. xo!

  17. Taylor says:

    Thanks for putting this post together! I love your reviews. However I think you have the rag & bone bootie sections wrong. If they run small, shouldn’t you size up? Sorry, just thought it might be confusing for others too. Thank you for the post again!

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Changed it! Appreciate the heads up! I wrote some of these at like, 2:00AM so I know my brain was turning to mush at that point hah! xo.

  18. Kendall says:

    Hey Alyson! I absolutely love reading these posts, I am SO excited to start shopping this sale. I’m curious if the sale opens to everyone tomorrow, including those from Canada, where I am. From what I’m reading, it says July 21.
    Thanks again!
    Kendall

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Hi Kendall! I’m so sorry! I definitely made a mistake on the go live date. It goes live on Friday for US and Canadian shoppers 🙂 I changed it in the post. My apologies!

  19. Lori Campbell says:

    Ahhh!!! Can not wait for the sale tomorrow!! Thank you for sharing so much of the nsale!!! And for all the honest comments!!! Very sweet of you!! My boyfriend lives in Nebraska so I like to stock up on winter basics!! I’m debating on setting my alarm for 2 am to shop!! Lol can you tell I’m excited!!!

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Definitely stock up! There are so many great winter buys right now! 🙂

  20. Kendall says:

    Hey Alyson!! Love these posts, thank you SO much for doing them. I’m super excited to shop this sale. I’m just curious if the sale opens to the public for everyone, including those in Canada, which is where I am. From what I’m seeing on websites, it says July 21.
    Thanks again!

  21. Steffanie says:

    Should the pink Nike’s ever come back in stock did you size up .5 or stick with your normal size?

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      They COULD, but I don’t have any inside knowledge on what items that have a reserve stock of, so definitely make a list of the items you want to check on the restock of when the sale goes live so you can quickly search. xo!

  22. Steffanie says:

    Oh no I thought you loved the Paige grey jeans during your live dressing room session??? Have you tried the size 23? Also, in the 7 jeans do you think you could have went down to a size 23? We are about the same size except I am 5’6 and have had to go down to 23 in both pairs of these Paige jeans plus rag and bone so far. Love all your picks! Thank you.

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      Hey Steffanie! I DO like them but … you know, sometimes you think something is awesome and then you wear them a little longer and your opinion can change and, while I do like them, there are a few things that I noticed that I don’t LOVE about them, which is what I shared. It’s important to remember – especially regarding denim – that everyone’s body and preferences are different so what doesn’t work for me .. might work GREAT for you so order them and give them a shot! My opinion is not the end all be all 🙂

  23. Holli says:

    You’re making me want everything! These are all great pieces, thanks for taking the time to share about each one. I’m seriously torn between the AG and rag & bone jeans. I love/don’t love certain things about each one so it definitely makes for a tough decision! I’m still waiting on the 7fam pair to ship which I’m sure will make it even more difficult when they arrive. 😉

    1. AlysonHaley says:

      They’re all great and of course jeans are one of those products that might work for one person but not another so, personally, I’m returning the AG’s and 7FAM but keeping the rag & bone’s. Good luck making your decision. Hope it gets easier 🙂 xo.

  24. Nicci says:

    Even though I love the what to buy posts, I LOVE these try on posts the best…you can actually see what the items look like and I really appreciate you talking about how they fit. My big order should arrive today and I can’t wait! #notpatient

  25. Valerie says:

    Alyson, you always provide the best reviews of items in the Anniversary sale. Thank you so much for the time and effort to do so! BTW, I noticed that there isn’t a review of the Tory Burch tote in your post. Would you mind letting us know what you thought of it?

  26. Allie says:

    You did good on your purchases, girlfriend!! I just received my shipment yesterday and I am sooo happy with all my purchases!!

    Your reviews are awesome! Thanks for putting in so much time and effort!

  28. Sophia says:

    Such a great round up! Thanks for all the great detail on sizing, too!

  29. This was so helpful! I love your blog the best because you’re always so detailed with everything.

    Random question — would you consider making a video on how to do a front tuck with your shirts? I can never seem to do it right.

    Thanks so much!
